Cole Carrigan vs Jake Paul

At the start of their careers, Cole Carrigan and Jake Paul were quite close. However, as their influence grew, their friendship deteriorated. After Carrigan left Team 10, Paul's content house, and shared his less-than-enjoyable experience there, Jake was left disappointed.

"The environment was very toxic. No one cared about each other. No one supported each other," Cole confessed of his time collaborating with Jake's crew. This started a public feud between the YouTubers that became so cold that Paul uninvited Carrigan from his birthday party.

Megan Thee Stallion vs Tory Lanez

After attending a party together in July 2020, rapper Megan Thee Stallion revealed that Tory Lanez allegedly shot her in the foot. Tory vehemently denied the allegations and even released a track titled Money Over Fallout shortly after the incident about his side of the story.

They say when you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all – especially on a public platform. However, makeup guru James Charles maintained the opposite after posting a video where he shared his not-so-friendly opinion of pop star Ariana Grande.

So, Ariana unfollowed the star on social media, and when he reached out to ask why, Grande said "I saw a lot of angry tweets from my fans... so I unfollowed."

With two of the biggest albums of 2021 so it's not surprising that Kanye West and Drake had a rivalry going on.

Social media became another outlet for the duo to slam each other – especially after Kanye found out that Drake was following his wife Kim Kardashian on Instagram. Luckily, the two seem to have set aside their differences and even united for a benefit concert in December 2021. Let's hope they keep things amicable from now on.

You can't diss one of the biggest musicians in the world and think you're going to get away with it, right?

Lady Gaga vs Madonna

Throughout her career, no one came close to snatching Madonna's queen of pop crown quite like Lady Gaga – which clearly left the singer threatened. When fans thought Gaga's Born This Way reminded them of Madonna's Express Yourself, the singer said "I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was... interesting."

However, Lady Gaga was not going to let Madonna shade her that easily. "It's the same one that's been in disco music for the last 50 years." She continued, "Just because I'm the first f***ing artist in 25 years to think of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn't mean I'm a plagiarist; it means that I'm f***ing smart. Sorry."

You out your league talking about me," he said. 50 and his fans called Montana out for lying about his Spotify streaming records in January 2020 and the duo continued to be at each other's throats.

50 Cent vs Ja Rule

50 Cent and Ja Rule's feud was once the biggest moment in hip-hop, but twenty years later, it seems these two just can't put their differences aside. How did the feud start? No one knows, really. Some say 50's associate grabbed Ja's necklace. Others believe Ja's label, Murder Inc. turned 50 away from a video shoot in Queens.

The truth is, this feud helped solidify both acts as hip-hop royalty. 50's hit single, Wanksta was written with Ja in mind, while Ja's comeback track, Loose Change became an instant hit with fans. The two still talk smack about each other today but, honestly, this is one feud that not many seem to care about anymore.

Her thing is something different." Ouch!

Shonda Rhimes vs Katherine Heigl

Shonda Rhimes has cemented herself as one of the greatest television visionaries of our time, and shows like Grey's Anatomy have a massive following over the years. However, while many love her storytelling, Katherine Heigl, who starred on the hit show, believed the series could have offered more.

So, when nominated for an Emmy Award in 2008, she withdrew her name from contention. "On some level, it stung, and on some level, I was not surprised," Shonda said in an interview. "When people show you who they are, believe them." It's not surprising that Katherine's character was written off the show soon after.

Michael Bay vs Megan Fox

Megan Fox's role as Mikaela Banes in Transformers catapulted her into superstardom, but despite being a fan favorite, the actress was not invited to star in the franchise's third film after calling out director Michael Bay for asking her to clean his car - something completely unrelated to her role in the film.

When she called out the horrific working conditions on set, she "was rejected because of qualities that are now being praised in other women coming forward," adding that Bay was "a nightmare to work for." Bay rebutted saying Fox wasn't invited to star in the third Transformers film because fame went to her head.

A comedian's job is to make someone laugh and every now and again it may be at someone else's expense. However, when Amy Schumer joked about the Kardashians on an episode of Saturday Night Live, Khloe Kardashian didn't take it in jest - instead, it really rubbed the reality star the wrong way.
